The architect Rosario Candela played a major role in shaping the architectural legacy of 20th-century New York—the distinctive “prewar” streetscapes of Park and Fifth Avenues and Sutton Place in particular. "Elegance in the Sky: The Architecture of Rosario Candela" revisits the setback terraces and neo-Georgian and Art Deco ornament of Candela-designed high-rise apartments. His buildings established new standards of chic urban living for some of New York’s wealthiest citizens and still rank among the most prized in the city, almost a century after they were built.
